Thank you for signing up to work in Extended Care. At Second Baptist we value even our youngest learners. Preschoolers and toddlers learn by playing. They experience the world and practice important skills as they play with their friends and their teachers. When you arrive in our preschool area, you will find two classrooms designed to engage our kids in meaningful, formative play.
You will be asked to help in either the preschool room or the toddler room, depending on the needs of the day. Both rooms are set up similarly, though our preschool room has more clearly defined learning centers. In each center you will find a learning goal posted on the wall with some wondering questions next to it. Your main role is to play and engage our youngest learners while keeping them safe and comforted. As they play, use the wondering questions to guide your engagement as you talk and play together.
Please plan to be in the preschool area by 10:15 am. Jessica will tell you which classroom she needs you in when you arrive.
Thanks again for loving our kids well. We hope this will be a meaningful experience for you and the kids!
